Successful applicants will receive a year of training before graduating to the call-out list.
Once on the list, the team’s highly-trained volunteers respond to emergencies when specialist mountain-rescue skills are required. The team is particularly interested in receiving applications from those living or working in Rothbury, Alnwick and Wooler areas.
Those wanting to apply should be physically fit and confident in their own ability to navigate safely through mountainous environments while the weather is unfavourable.
Prior winter walking or mountaineering experience would be advantageous, but not essential. Those applying should be between 18 and 70.
Email [email protected] for an application form, which should be completed and returned by the end of August.
